BY DAVIDE OLDANI
Five special recipes by Davide Oldani, to serve up at Christmas or on special occasions and festivities.
The chef reveals his secrets for making the most of typical local cuisines but in an innovative key, such as: “Albicocca di panettone”, “Pici with Grana Padano, spicy currants and fennel”, “Pumpkin sponge”, “Stracci di pasta made with burnt wheat flour with Bitto cheese and sage”, “Frittata and Bread”.
“My POP cuisine comes from a desire to mix the basics with well made, the good with the accessible, and innovation with tradition. I am convinced that Italian cooking is great – not just because of its variety and taste – because it is open to constant reinterpretation. I’ve done it simply, by enhancing all the ingredients and making seasonality and high quality ingredients two of my cardinal rules.”
